    It's an obvious nod to "Rock 'n' Roll High School" that mostly serves as a grim reminder of how far comedies about the education system have fallen.

    A campus comedy that's as dull as bong water, Accepted is like the product of a community college filmmaking class, remedial division.

    Go right ahead and skip this one at the Cineplex. You've got my word: It won't be on the final.

    Typical brain-dead comedy perfectly suited for anyone currently failing college or regretting the fact that they never attended. Cliche in almost every regard, with a horrible leading actor, and a boring "rebellious young teen vs. old white men" philosophy that seals its place in the worst of the worst. Full Review »

    This movie was hilarious. I though it would mostly be funny for Lewis Black, but it was funny everywhere else.

    This is an underrated movie. Yes the story is thin and completely unrealistic but the characters, specifically Adam Herschman as the crazy teenage chef who experiments with food and Jeremy Howard as the hysterical freak who can blow up with his mind. Accepted has an inspiring court scene, a skatalogical old man, Jonah Hill dressed as a hot dog and a stupid but absolutely hilarious ending. Full Review »
